OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Desmond Jennings hit his first career
home run and later added a two-run double in a seven-run seventh
inning and the Tampa Bay Rays rallied from five runs down to stun
the Oakland Athletics 10-8 Thursday.
B.J. Upton and Evan Longoria also homered, helping make a winner
out of right-hander Wade Davis (8-7), who struggled early before
settling down to retire 17 straight batters. Upton, the subject of
ongoing trade rumors, hit his team-leading 16th home run after
sitting out one game.
Conor Jackson had a two-run home run in the first inning when
the A's hit for the cycle with four consecutive batters, but
Oakland's bullpen imploded and wasted a solid outing by starter
